Andrey Koreshkov will seek out a second win over Douglas Lima in Israel at Bellator 163, officials announced.

Set for November 11 from Tel Aviv, the Spike Sports card will be headlined by Koreshkov’s second welterweight title defense vs. Lima, a former champion.

Also, Noad Lahat, a veteran of the Israeli Army, meets Scott Cleve in a featherweight battle.

Koreshkov (19-1) defeated Benson Henderson earlier this year, as the 26-year-old is unbeaten since 2013. Lima (27-6) bested Paul Daley to secure his rematch with Koreshkov, who claimed the belt from him last year.

Lahat (9-2) and Cleve (15-5) will help usher Bellator into the country for the first time.
